I hate it.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Only it's January 16th.

If this had happened around Christmastime I would be happy - ecstatic, even. But now?


Not even a little bit.

In fact, I'm hating the snow.


Because tomorrow is OUR DAY. You know what day I'm talking about... The day that every pregnant woman looks forward to almost as much as the day her freshly baked baby is born...

**The day we find out the gender!**

What does this have to do with the snow?

Well, given that we live an hour and 10 minutes away from my doctor's office and our ultrasound appointment is at 8:15am (I was trying to help out my husband's work schedule when I made the appointment a month ago) and there's no sign of the weather getting any better (super slick roads this morning and we wouldn't exactly be leaving at the ideal time of day for that kind of road travel) - I'm getting a little (seriously, I need a paper bag!) worried either we aren't going to make the appointment or that we're going to show up and the person who has the capabilities of telling us who our baby is won't make it there on time...

Am I worrying about stuff I have no control of? YES.

Will it all work out in the end? It always does (one way or another).

Am I still going to lose most sleep tonight? Definitely.

Is all this completely legit due to the fact that I'm pregnant and therefore have a valid excuse for pretty much any irrational behavior and/or emotional antics? Y.E.S.

So there you have it.



  1. I hate the snow, too. But, for entirely different reasons. And, I feel it's a dirty little secret, hating the snow. The rest of the world seems to be in love with it....

    Can you come in to town tonight (Monday) and spend the night with some friends? Or even better, a hotel? That would save you some time, if there is indeed a snow storm tonight. And, I will betcha that if the ultrasound tech isn't there, your ob should be able to at least take a quick peak, just to see the goods. Maybe?
    Trying to be hopeful here.

  2. Aaaaaaah, you had me at hotel. ;)

    I hadn't even thought of staying in town. I called the office to make sure they were going to be open and the lady said the chances of them NOT being open are slim to none - however, if they are there's no way of us knowing before we'd leave in the morning... Just one of those things that's in God's hands and in the scheme of things is really not that big of a deal. It's not like the baby's gender is going to change if we have to wait until next week (although I'm not sure I can wait that long with no sleep!). :)

    Thanks for the encouragement! :) (And I hadn't even thought about my OB being able to take a peek - I wonder if she would!

    1. I really super duper hope that I get a call or a text from you, or your husband gets to work quickly... I'm so excited for you guys! Also, coming from the queen of worry, I'm sure everything will work out. :) Drive safe!
